5 July 1813
The first phase of the Austrian advance is now complete. The garrisons of Passau and Salzburg have been isolated and the river Salach is secure. 3 and 4 corps are urged to march to Linz with the utmost speed.
The Austrian advance has left two corps within striking distance of the whole French army, and without immediate support from their reserves. Oudinot is well positioned to take advantage of this error by striking with 10 corps.
